1. Let g ( x ) = e x x on [ 1, 2] . The derivative of g is g ( x ) = e x 1 .

(a) Write the slope intercept form of the equation of the tangent line to
the graph of g at x = 1 .
The slope of the tangent line at x = 1 is given by g (1) = e 1 .

Furthermore, g (1) = e 1 . So the equation of the tangent line is

y y1 = m ( x x1 )

y ( e 1) = ( e 1)( x 1)

+1 Slope is g (1) = e 1
+1 g (1) = e 1

+1 y = ( e 1) x

y = ( e 1) x ( e 1) + ( e 1)
y = ( e 1) x

(b) Determine the x-coordinate of each critical value of g . Show the

g ( x ) = ex 1
0 = ex 1
1 = ex

+1 Set g ( x ) = 0
+1 e x = 1
+1 x = 0

x = ln1
x=0

We must evaluate g at the critical values and end points.

g ( 1) = e 1 ( 1) 1.368
g (0) = e0 ( 0 ) = 1
g (2) = e 2 1 5.389

The coordinates of the absolute maximum are ( 2, 5.389 )

x = 2 , and critical
value from part (b)

Since f ( x ) > 0 for all x , f is increasing.

+1 h ( x ) = 0

h( x ) = cosh 2 x sinh 2 x
h ( x ) = 2 ( cosh x )( sinh x ) 2 ( sinh x )( cosh x )

Since h ( x ) = 0 for all values of x , every x-value is a critical value.
(c) Write the expressions in order from the smallest value to the largest
value: h(0), h ( 0 ) , f (1) . Show the work that leads to your
conclusion.
f (0) = 1
g (0) = 1
